Challenging Challenges...

I've been away from the world of card challenges for a while.  Life has gotten in the way... there was always something to do (or someone staying in my craft room / office / guest room)  Life happens.

I've been getting creative lately with Valentines - but I was itching to stretch my creative muscles, and the best way that I know how to do that is to enter a 365 Card challenge.  Seriously.  I love 'em!  So here they are...

365 Cards - Day 340  White Space

OK, my first day back, and I'm cheating already.  I didn't mean to... my intention was to stick the dude on the centre of the card and call it a day, but little Rockin' Roger had other ideas.  He clearly has star attitude, and demanded a back up band of 'heavy metal' and stars.  I contend that, as a rocker, he's supposed to be a rebel, and the addition of embellishments behind him is too natural to be blamed on me.  Blame Roger.



Yeah, that's a real CD behind the dude...  I work for a software company, and we had some old releases that they were going to junk.   Heck no!  Card material!!  I've got a ton of 'em!

Stamp is Sugar Nellie (coloured with Copics); DP is Basic Grey (Obscure);  Metal mesh - dollar store  (I'm the dollar store queen)

365 Cards - Let's Celebrate   Use at least one sticker (check) & make it a birthday theme (check)



Simple dimple card, but for some reason it took me an age.  I'm rusty...  (too much rain in Vancouver)

Cuttlebug folder & dollar store dimensional sticker (did I mention that I'm the dollar store queen?)  Cardstock is moldy oldie from the stash.  I no longer remember who or where it came from.

Well, it is late, and I'm tired.  Soooo glad it's the weekend!  I will sleep 'til 8  (that's a luxurious sleep-in in my world), then I've got to make more Valentines.  Seriously, those things are selling like hotcakes!!  Yay!  More money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.   I freakin' HATE cancer!!

G'night!

- Carolyn
